Tucked away in its own little neighborhood corner


Simple. Yet, elegant.

There is probably no better way to describe this amazing 1930s-era Colonial-style home at 636 W. 254th St., with amazing light from all exposures. Imagine watching some of the most gorgeous sunsets over a partial Hudson River view.

This home boasts six bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, tucked away in its own hidden setting on a third of an acre with a circular driveway and a separate two-car garage. That garage, by the way, has its own storage area with an almost-level fenced garden.

Some of this home’s amazing features include a spacious entry with a coat closet and powder room. A library with custom built-in shelving. A large living room with a wood-burning fireplace, with access to a vast patio.

There also is a huge formal dining room accessed from the center hallway, or through the modern eat-in kitchen with a separate mud room and access to the side of the house.

A sweeping staircase takes you to the second floor with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a third floor with additional bedrooms, a bathroom, and storage.

The basement is finished with access to the backyard. There are also well-manicured gardens with mature trees and an in-ground sprinkler system.

Among the many improvements are a new roof — added last November — along with a new gas piping into the basement, as well as French drains and a second electric water heater.

This fantastic home is conveniently located next to Metro-North, express and local buses, schools, shopping and restaurants.

And it’s waiting for you — simply, yet elegantly — for $2.45 million.
